What Is Leucoderma?

Depigmentation of the skin occurs in leucoderma, a condition that affects the skin. This happens as a result of harm being inflicted to the body's melanocytes. Skin and hair are coloured by the pigment melanin. The melanin-producing cells in the liver could stop working and may even die. Leucoderma is often interchangeably used with Vitiligo.

What Are The Causes Of Leucoderma?

  • At some stage in life, leucoderma can also be stimulated by some autoimmune illnesses such as thyroid. There are numerous causes of leucoderma. There is a good chance that the person will get the disease if it has been inherited.
  • Additional common causes of leucoderma include burns, traumatic injuries, unintentional wounds, psoriasis, ulcers, and eczema. White spots could emerge as a result of this.
  • Leucoderma doctors and researchers suggest that the condition can arise as a result of the body being exposed to specific chemicals, such as butyl phenol, or from taking specific medications, such as EGFR inhibitors or intralesional steroid injections.
  • The occurrence of leucoderma can also result from congenital defects such as Waardenburg syndrome, partial albinism, tuberous sclerosis, and piebaldism.

Signs And Symptoms Of Leucoderma?

Often, people search for the best allopathic medicine for vitiligo or the latest treatment for leucoderma and the reliance on herbal modes of treatments has decreased. However, the ayurvedic medicine for white patches on skin takes into account the signs and symptoms exhibited in detail and works at cellular levels.

  • Patches with vitiligo may itch when it spreads rapidly. Other than that, the patches and spots hardly ever hurt.
  • A person may experience hair colour loss due to vitiligo. The hair in that area may turn white when vitiligo arises on the skin.
  • You may have changes in eye colour if you have vitiligo. This occurs swiftly. Although it is uncommon, vitiligo can also impair vision.
  • A condition called uveitis, that is, inflammation of the eyes, can occur

Patient Testimonials



My name is Reeva and I am from Bengaluru. Ever since my teenage, I was troubled with leukoderma and had developed an inferiority complex due to this. I went for various treatment options, however, none of them satisfactorily worked. In fact, I developed allergies as a result of medicinal side-effects. Then my cousin residing in Delhi asked me to visit Delhi and visit Karma Ayurveda. From the first month itself, the white patches in the skin started to tone down, some of them even disappearing completely. Though, I still have some symptoms, they are extremely manageable. Thanks to Karma Ayurveda.



It was always an embarrassing issue for my aunt to go outside because of the white patches on her skin. After trying out various allopathic treatments to no avail, she decided to give Ayurveda a go. Karma Ayurveda is a renowned Ayurveda clinic and upon reading positive reviews, my aunt decided to use their services. Dr. Puneet recommended ayurvedic medicines and dietary changes to her. The progress was slow, however, there was a marked reduction in the size of the white patches on her body after one month. It has been close to six months now and almost all the white patches from her body have disappeared. Job well done by Karma Ayurveda.



I am Deborah and very recently visited Karma Ayurveda about 2 months ago for the persistent white patches on my skin. These patches, particularly on the face, had always made me feel embarrassed. Upon listening to my symptoms patiently, Dr. Puneet offered me a treatment plan that was completely based on Ayurveda. I was skeptical at first, though, soon started to see massive improvements in my symptoms. Now, the white patches are almost gone. All thanks to Dr. Puneet.



My uncle was troubled with the persistent white patches on his skin. Apart from this, he had developed allergies due to an unchecked consumption of allopathic medicines. He once came across the advertisement of the Karma Ayurveda and visited the hospital. Dr. Puneet offered him a treatment plan that included the consumption of herbs and certain dietary changes. Within the first two weeks itself, his white patches started to shrink and now, he is almost completely cured.



Hi, I am Shelly from New Delhi. I developed white patches from 16 and they were a constant cause of worry for me. I would shun going out to parties or on weekends. One of my uncles introduced me to the Karma Ayurveda. I had little hopes from that clinic; however, the treatment therapies changed my view completely. My white patches reduced by almost 60% in the first two months. The best part was that the entire treatment therapy was based on Ayurveda. I rarely suffered any side-effects during the treatment process. Kudos to Dr. Puneet and his team!
